NOTES

INTRODUCTION

1. The term kontrolno-propusknoi punkt has a police or security connotation, and is usually used to indicate form of identity or passport checkpoint.

2. According to media reports, a total of two hundred million rubles ($6.8 million) was spent on the 2009 forum, including seventy-five million rubles ($2.6 million) from the federal budget. Because the forum was organized by the Federal Youth Affairs Agency (Rosmolodezh) instead of the pro-Kremlin Nashi movement, it had state status and was eligible for financing from the state budget for the first time. “Russian Billionaire Prokhorov to Finance Kremlin’s Youth Forum—Newspaper,” Sputnik News, March 15, 2010, http:// en.rian.ru/russia/20100315/158199960 .html.

3. See for example Gillis (2007); Lucas (2008); and Myers (2007). On “black PR,” see Wilson (2005).

4. NEET is a new term in European policy circles, prompted by concerns about the global recession’s disproportionate impact on young people (i.e., those under thirty years old). In these discussions, youth who lack higher education, or who have an immigrant background, are considered most “at risk” for attaining NEET status. “Young People and ‘NEETS,’” Eurofound, December 13, 2013, http:// www.eurofound.europa.eu/emcc/labour market/youth.htm.

5. Rupert Neate and Graeme Wearden, “Euro Leaders Unite to Tackle Soaring Youth Unemployment Rates,” Guardian, May 28, 2013, http://www .theguardian.com/business/2013/may/28 /european-youth-unemployment-francois -holland.

6. The issue was high on the agenda at the World Economic Forum in Davos on May 2013. Ibid.

7. Eliasoph’s study tracks US-based civic and community-based volunteer programs, but her characterization holds true for the diverse empowerment projects I consider and which continue to proliferate globally.

8. Education Minister Andrei Fursenko made similar pronouncements, once proclaiming, “Our goal is to educate qualified consumers!”

9. Yurchak’s (2005) formulation offers an analytic lens through which to examine these architects, and clues as to how we might interrogate the projects they have created. Putin-era youth projects are shaped by this generation’s memories of the past and its particularly agentive relationship with the state.
